We had such a great weekend at Edisto Beach and Charleston. We went for Randy’s little cousin’s wedding and had a small family vacation for the remainder of the weekend.

It was a little bit cloudy and rainy for the weekend, but it was still nice. We flew kites and walked along the beach.


 We tried to have a beach day one day but we could not handle the no-see-thems. These bugs are seriously the most irritating and maddening things on the planet! They swarmed us at the beach and we tried to ignore them, but you just can’t. We didn’t go back to the beach after that.


 But we enjoyed Charleston and the wedding! There were no no-see-thems there! 🙂 We had lunch at the Fleet Landing near the port of Charleston. Best thing about being pregnant and vacationing in Charleston is the food. Oh the food! I ate my weight in shrimp and grits, which these days is a lot! 😉


 The wedding took place at the Citadel college, such a cool place.

Isn’t my husband so handsome? I’m one lucky girl! 🙂

 The reception was tons of fun! It was at an awesome inn and the food was amazing! I had shrimp and grits again – don’t judge! 😉 It was a beautiful wedding and we had a wonderful time! We are so very happy for Sarah and Alex! I know that they will live happily ever after!

  1. I love this pic Jama. I hope you are making a picture book for each month of your pregnancy. Your children will want to see it one day.
    Time will go by fast and she will be here before you know it. I love your hair in a pony tail.
